Picture of the day: A lonely scavenger

I am looking thru old images, and it is a remarkable thing looking at things in a new way.  Todays images is from the Peruvian Amazon jungle, and the image is of a vulture, that I have to admit is not the prettiest of creatures, but I think it looked kind of majestic sitting in the middle of the river contemplating whatever a vulture would contemplate.

Picture of the day: Caiman at the riverbank

When I went into the Tambopata in Madre de Dios as part of the Peruvian Amazonas last year, we got a look at this caiman.  Caiman is the smallest part of the crocodile family.  and it was just enjoying the sun. (I think they are nocturnal, so I guess it was just preserving energy for hunt)
